The term "Backup" means the methods and processes involved to copy computer data (system data as well as application data) to media other than the ones where the data originally live (disk, tape, optical, cloud). "Restore" in turn means the methods and processes involved in data recovery, i. e., bringing back copied computer data to their original location. Backup/Restore primarily serves as a means of protection against data loss, be it due to disaster, corruption or sabotage. It can also be used for recovering data from an earlier point in time and even for cloning machines or applications. There is a wide variety of backup/restore software available, from expensive commercial products to free or open source tools.

Dear Team,
The dual port issue has been resolved now, the NetVault is successfully installed with license and my both drives is properly connected with NetVault. NetVault backup clients are also installed on all client servers.

Please send me create backup job configuration guide or any other video link. My  clients servers shows me on NetVault backup  and all drives shown when I create a new job Like C or D drive.

Get free NFR key for Veeam Availability Suite 9.5

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (1 year, 2 sockets) to all certified IT Pros. The license allows for the non-production use of Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 in your home lab, without any feature limitations. It works for both VMware and Hyper-V environments

I had a disk error that was fixed, however, it caused my Exchange 2016 EDB file to now show 0 Bytes. The database cannot be mounted. I have tried all eseutil commands, but they all give jet error -1206, and state the file is corrupt. There is no backup, as the disk error was not allowing a proper backup to be generated. Is there any way to recover? If not, how do you create a new "first container" database for administration and system files?

FEW TRICKS TO SPEEDUP PENDRIVE DATA TRANSFER RATE:

1.File system should be NTFS: If you want to Speedup Pendrive , then make sure you have NTFS as file system. You can do so by Right clicking on your pendrive and selecting Format,Select NTFS File system, Uncheck Quick Format And Click On Start.

2.Disk errors: To check disk errors go to the properties tab of your pen drive, then select ‘tools’ tab. You will find a ‘check now’ button, click it and then hit ‘start’ to fix the errors. The time taken for scan depends on the size of the pen drive.

3.Device policy: Under properties of your pen drive, select ‘hardware’ tab. Then select USB device from there that will lead you to a pop up window where you need to change settings. You can even have better performance of pen drive by clicking the option under ‘hardware’ tab.

4.Format: This is one of the effective options that many users have tried. When you have used your pen drive for quite a long time, you can speed it up by formatting the device.

Carefully test your pen drive with the factors given above to Speedup Pendrive. In addition to this, you should keep checking for these aspects regularly, say twice or thrice in a month.

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

Hi, I am trying to fully understand System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 R2 Short-Term Goals, in particular Retention Range and File Recovery Points.

Can anyone clue me in on this so I know how much or little to set these to, which ultimately affect storage size requirements?


If you have any links, articles, suggestions, recommendations, comments, all are welcome and greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

at a very basic level- how do devices show in symantec/veritas backup exec management console? Does the software inventory your network and report back on status, or when the servers are built are they equipped with an agent that is configured to report back to the backup exec server? Put another way - if you have servers in your domain that aren't showing in backup exec management console - why could that be?

I'm trying to figure out how to re-run the QP1AVMS report for August 6 and 7th.  Something didn't run properly and the volume movement reports that ran for August 6th and 7th didn't have any volumes on them.  I need to re-run that job, but I don't know what it is.  I think it has something related to BRMMNT09.  I'm new to BRMS.  Any help would be appreciated.

Greetings,

Previously, we used the windows backup utility to backup our server daily with out any issues. Last month we change to the Barracuda backup for our daily backups.  The initial backup went fine but took a very long time.  Since then, we have had sporadic issues with the incremental backups.  Barracuda has informed us that the USN Journal may be corrupted or full.  I have checked the event log and do not find any issue with the Journal.

Barracuda is advising us to delete the Active USN Change Journal and create a new one.  My concerns are as follows:

1. Is there any risk to the OS or data by completing the delete recreate process?
2. How long should this process take to delete and recreate the journal?  ( We have over 8 million files on the server)
3. Is this the best process to correct this issue?

Thank You Very Much For Your Help

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

Dear Team,

Now that Dell has taken over EMC we purchased one of their SAN systems about 6 months ago. On our DR site we have a Dell EqualLogics and we would like to replicate both SAN's. Is this possible between EMC and EqualLogics, I will need to do block level replication.

Thank you

Hi

We have SQL database files on the computer Windows 7 Pro x64. We use Asigra for Cloud Backup. Asigra is using VSS backup. The backup started failing a week ago with the error message:
"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process." when trying to access .ldf and .mdf files.
I checked the permissions and it is fine. I tried adding exceptions to AVG antivirus but AVG could not access files either.
I used Process Explorer and the files are in use by sqlserv (64 bit) and not sqlserv*32. I checked on another computer we have similar set up and the same backup type and the files over there are not in use by any process.

How can I fix it?
Regards,
Tom

Hi EE,

I have a problem with one of my servers not replicating to an OFF-SITE location. I am able to replicate ON-SITE to the same host without a problem or even to another host in the same environment. Replicating via VPN to our data center give me the following error

"processing configuration Error: The operation is not allowed in the current state."

I would like to add that I am able to replicate a different server from a different location to this same host without any problems via VPN.

Thanks

I was off and running with what I thought was a great solution to my backup problem. Unfortunately, I didn't consider reboot.

My "Virtual Drive" was assigned drive "D". Following a Windows update and reboot last night, Drive D is no longer visible. My Storage Spaces is comprised of 2 8TB external drives.

Is there a way to recover from this without starting over? And why would anyone even use this feature if it won't survive a reboot?

Ideas anyone?

I did a Veeam Exchange restore and exported the three pst files to the desktop.  I then copied the files to my computer so that I could open them in Outlook 2016.  Unfortunately I get an error message saying "File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file Blah Blah.pst".  

I edited the files and added full permissions for myself and even the "Everyone" group but still get the same message, any ideas please?
